MPB 20 – Portable Compactor


The MPB 20 is our 20m³ wet spec, portable compactor. The main purpose of a portable compactor is to fully contain all waste whilst reducing the amount of transport required to dispose of waste. By using the MPB 20, it is ensured that charges are correct for disposal instead of being overcharged for under capacity skips and bins. The extra powerful 39t compaction force can achieve payloads of up to 8t of general waste but in some instances, up to 12t.  As waste is unsightly and most often, smelly, one of the major benefits of a portable compactor is that everything thrown into the machine is compacted into the fully sealed, watertight chamber which means there is no leakage of waste, residuals and smells unlike conventional bins/skips which often leak leading to vermin problems and other negative impacts.  The MPB 20 uses a very fast pendulum compaction mechanism which has a self-cleaning scraper blade, these features are great as it can be continually fed with no requirement for cleaning out wet, grotty inspection houses. Boasting a large feed opening of 1800x1280mm, it is ideal for bulky waste and allows various feeding methods such as hand loading, forklifts, tipping skips etc.

The compactor can be specified with a hand feed door or a bin lift attached to tip 500-1100ltr wheelie bins for better manual handling (MPB 20 BL). For further customisation, contact us and we will try to meet all requirements.

Typically, the minimum amount of waste per week to gain a cost saving would be either:

  • 1100ltr wheelie bins – Fifteen GW (General waste)
  • FEL (Front end loader) skip(s) – Three GW
  • REL (Rear end loader) skip(s) – Two GW


  • E-stops
  • Twin cylinders
  • ¾ full indicator
  • Automatic cycle
  • Large feed opening
  • Self-cleaning scraper blade
  • Pendulum compaction method
  • Simple, easy to operate controls
  • Rear rollers with drop down hook
  • Hydraulic pack separate from waste
  • Powerful 39 tonne compaction force
  • Top hinged rear door with 100% all round seal
  • Rated IP65 so safe to be sited inside or outside
  • Lockable front hinged feed door & control panel



  • Helps prevent fly tipping
  • Reduces waste disposal costs
  • Reduces contractor traffic on site
  • More environmentally friendly
  • Saves on labour from reduced material handling
  • No longer being charged for air voids in skips/bins
  • Reduces carbon footprint and complies with ISO 14001
  • Keeps the yard much tidier – contains all waste, liquids and bad smells

The MPB 20 is extremely easy to use and requires very little manual work.


Step 1 – Feeding

This step is straight forward – throw the waste into the charge box and press the green ‘go’ button to start the compaction cycle. The pendulum blade will sweep up all the waste and compact it into the back container. This cycle will run 3 times but can be configured to run more/less or on a timer.


Step 2 – When is the compactor full?

The compactor has an indicator to notify the operator when it is ¾ full. Once this illuminates, the operator can calculate when the compactor will be full and when it needs to be collected by the waste contractor.


Step 3 – Waste removal

The contractor will arrive on site with a hook lift vehicle and will unplug the MPB 20. They reverse up to the compactor and engage the hook positioned at the front of the machine. The vehicle then pulls the compactor up onto the vehicle bed. The compactor will be taken away, emptied and returned ready to start using again.


As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to operate it in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.


*Note – Refurbished models may vary in operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
